In a previous post I shared how to create a simple interior design for your church that will be beautiful and functional in the most practical way possible.
I also gave a brief overview of how I built my first church interior, and how you can build a beautiful interior in less than 5 minutes using these steps.
Today I’m going to share a slightly more detailed step-by-step process to create your very own gorgeous church interior that will make your guests feel right at home.
This is by no means the only way to do this, and there are tons of ways to do it, but it is the simplest and most straightforward way to build your very first church.
So, without further ado, let’s dive in!
Building a church interior in just 5 minutes 1.
Choose your exterior design colorsThe most important thing in designing your interior is to choose colors that match the design of your exterior, and this is particularly important if you are going to be using your church as a residence.
For this project I chose a light grey exterior.
I’m also using the white trim and dark grey flooring from the church as an exterior.
Choose the exterior shapeFor most churches, a church is a very simple structure.
Each section is divided into several smaller sections called the pews.
In most churches you will only have one or two pews, but you can always build more if you need.
I choose to have the church with one pew, with the sanctuary as a second pew.
I chose to have my sanctuary on the outside of the church.
I’ve also included the main entrance to the sanctuary, so you’ll be able to access it from the main sanctuary.
Create your interior plan The easiest way to find a good shape to build an interior is through your local architect.
I started by browsing through the building plans for a couple of churches in my area.
If you’re not familiar with building plans, they’re a great resource for planning your home, but they can be expensive, so if you’re looking for a quick, easy way to get started, you may want to check out the free Build a House program.
You can also find a copy of the plans on the internet, and most churches have one.
I decided to go with a church that had been renovated by a church group a couple years ago, so it was pretty clear what I wanted to do.
I then picked out the interior design from the building plan, and cut the details down to the smallest details.
I knew I wanted a central area with a central entrance, so I chose white.
The white trim on the exterior should match the overall design of the house and should match what you would see from inside the sanctuary.
I picked the same trim for the sanctuary and main entrance.
I found the interior color for the church to be the same shade of grey as the interior of the sanctuary; the sanctuary was a light blue, the sanctuary entrance a darker blue, and the main entry a dark blue.
The interior of my church is going to have an area with two pew entrances, and one pews to each side of the main and sanctuary entrances.
Cut out the plan sheets from the planbooks and cut out the pieces I wanted 4.1.
Cut off the ends of the planbook pages, leaving enough space for the pew areas 4.2.
Cut a piece of white fabric out of the sheet, which you will be using to cover the areas that you’ll need 4.3.
Sew the edges together, with some tape to keep them in place.
I recommend using a white t-shirt to hold your pew edges together.
The sides of the pouches will need to be slightly curved, and that will help to hold the pouf’s edges together and keep them from getting caught in the fabric.
Sew together the two sides of each pew section to form a perfect pew 4.6.
I didn’t need any extra trim on these pews 4.7.
Now that the interior is done, it’s time to get to building!
Start by cutting out the piers 5.1, 5.2, and 5.3 5.4, 5
